Persil Clock on Market Square

Martkplatz, 39307 Genthin

The painting of "A Lady in White", located on the nostalgic advertising column on the Market Square is an eye-catcher. The column with clock was erected by the Persil Company in 1994, paying homage to the long tradition of detergent production in Genthin. In 2002, the square was redesigned to include a decorative fountain, around which children can often be found playing. Additionally, the square has space for various festivals and events. Beneath the square is an underground bunker from 1944 whose entrance is located at the advertising column. Guided tours of the bunker are available and the bunker is also used for lectures.
